33 year old Katie Kenyon was reported missing after she was last seen on Friday, according to Sky News.

Police in the UK say that a woman matching her description left an address with a man on Friday morning before travelling in a silver Ford Transit to the Bolton by Bowland area of north Lancashire but she has not been heard from since.

A 50 year old man from Burnley has been arrested in connection with the disappearance and is currently helping them with inquiries.

Katie's family are said to be very concerned for her wellbeing, with her sister Sarah posting on Facebook: "It is now a waiting game, we have done everything we can, searched everywhere, contacted everyone."

Detective Chief Inspector Al Davies, of Lancashire Police's major investigation team, said: "Katie's disappearance is out of character and her family are understandably very worried.

"We are doing all we can to try and find her and I would appeal to anyone who has any information, however insignificant you may think it is, to come forward and contact us.

"I would especially like to hear from anyone who was in Bolton by Bowland or the surrounding area and saw anything suspicious to get in touch.

"Did you see a woman matching Katie's description, either alone or with a man? Did you see the silver transit van or might you have dashcam footage which shows it?

"While we have arrested someone in connection with our investigation, I am very much keeping an open mind as to what has happened and I have a team of officers and staff working hard to try and find Katie and return her to her family.

"You could help with that so please do come forward and speak to us as your information could prove crucial."

Katie is described as 5ft 9ins with shoulder-length blond hair and was last seen wearing a blue cardigan, light blue and white top, black leggings and flip flops.
